It reads like you can drop the ecce child but rate will depend on if childminder is on call if child sick or preschool closed etc. What exactly are the times? Its approx €5 an hour for insured childminder and adjust rate according to what childminder is offering. First aid, experience, qualified, garda vetting etc.

Hi thanks for replying. On thinking about it a bit more I´m thinking we will probably need a bit of help in the morning too to get the girls off to school and crèche, so from 7.30-9, and then 12.30 -6 4 days a week. No I would expect someone to be on call while the kids were in school/crèche as I work from home so could cover. So I guess I´m looking for 28 hours a week, ideally in my home. Is it more expensive if the childminder works in your house?

If you drop ecce child to childminder for a full day care needed, majority will charge for those three hours. So your looking 10+ hours a day by four by approx €5 an hr. Discount may be available for the national school child, depending on childminder.
If you prefer a nanny in your home you need register as the employer and pay at least minimum wage with full holiday entitlements, contract etc. You will find many who prefer cash but its you who will be held responsible. Its most expensive form care.
